Our Afghan Classic Mix cookie box features three traditional Afghan sweets including:

  • Gosh E-fil: An Afghan doughnut made by shaping dough into the shape of an ear, and then deep frying it in oil. Each shape is then topped with chopped pistachios and powdered sugar.
  • Jalebi: A dessert made by deep-frying a flour based batter in pretzel or circular shapes, which are then soaked in sugar syrup.
  • Sheer Payra: An Afghan milk fudge made with powdered milk and flavored with nuts, rose water and cardamom. It is typically served with tea or coffee.

    Each box includes 1 1/2 dozen cookies , a story from one of our bakers, information on the sweets, and a little bit about Hello Neighbor.

    Proceeds from New Neighbor Cookie Table provide critical supplemental income to our refugee bakers and their families.
